According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will sport the new Exynos 5 Octa processor and will also feature a massive 6.3-inche display.
Samsung is looking to convince millions of Galaxy Note 2 users that the phablet experience is further optimised once the more powerful Galaxy Note 3 is released, which analyst said is likely to happen first week of September 2013.
The Note 2 cemented the virtue of Samsung's gamble when it introduced the first phablet in the original Note. Together the two devices delivered some 15 million buys for the South Korean tech giant and the cash register remains ringing to date.
In releasing the Note 3, the Galaxy smartphone maker is gunning to replicate and even exceed the impressive achievements of its heavyweight predecessors. And here are the reasons why current Note 2 users, and even new converts, will be swayed to embrace the upgrade mode.
Top-notch CPU might from Exynos
In a new benchmark rating, the Samsung Galaxy S4 on an 8-core Exynos Octa 5 chip easily overwhelmed the GS4 on a Snapdragon 600 serving. The test only proved that Samsung's in-house chip brand is the best source of power for mobile devices and the Note 3 will be a full recipient of this incredible technology.
Aside from bringing more CPU muscle, Exynos is also known to support energy-efficient smartphone operation, promising for Note 3 owners the possibility of enjoying both power and longevity in a single package.
The best S-Pen rendition yet
Behind the wonders of the S-Pen that Samsung had pulled back from oblivion is the vaunted WACOM technology. The company, however, is not holding back on its intention to further improve the stylus.
Likely, it will happen on the Note 3 with the phablet using Sharp's IGZO LCD display technology, which according to its Japanese creator will impress device users with a more sensitive touchscreen function. Plus a bonus: the display screen is not as power-hog as the others, besting even Samsung's Super AMOLED on that respect.
More powerful battery
Top-tier devices require as much power juice as possible and Samsung has been obliging to that as seen in the first Note and the Note 2. It should be no surprise that the company will pack a better battery rating for the Note 3, probably the best among the high-end Galaxy smartphone class.
Note 3 buyers will surely appreciate that device's source of energy is comparable to that of the kind found on top-of-the-line tablet computers since in many ways the phone is also a tablet.
More battery options
And it gets better again in the battery department. One advantage enjoyed by the Note 3, and all the other Samsung smartphones for that matter, over the iPhone 5 or Nexus 4 is its replaceable back plate.
This feature allows users to bring with them a reserve battery pack, which they can easily slide in when the original reaches the drained point. Further, the design encourages useful customisation like the addition of wireless charging capability. The latter will surely be an option that Note 3 users would not mind getting.
More storage possibilities
No definite specs yet on the storage capacity but regardless of the Note 3's internal memory buyers will surely rejoice with the microSD expansion that comes with the phablet. They can, for instance, grab the 16GB model, which assumingly will carry the lowest price tag. Then they can easily purchase external storage, not too pricey these days, that runs from 64GB to possibly 128GB.
In short, without spending too much cash, Note 3 users will take pleasure in so much storage room that previous Note owners did not enjoy.
